Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

I am trying to update the interconnect module currently on my C7000 blade system but the OA always loses connection while in the middle of it. I have two OA (4.60) and two interconnect modules Flex-10 (4.31 and 4.45). I took one of the modules out to be able to update them since they are not at the same version. 

I get to the "Starting firmware update process" line in vcsu but the OA loses connection and will not come back up until I go physically "re-set" the ip address of the active OA. I can also do it by "force takeover" from the standby OA in SSH. 

I tried getting the Active OA to get back online by doing a takeover twice (so the Standby OA stays on Standby) but it does not change anything for the VCSU, it will get stuck on the update process line without ever going further. I have tried this with both VCSU 1.12 and 1.13 as well. 

This as been happening since I started playing around with this blade system. Everything seems to be working except this problem that occurs most of the time when I use virtual connect in some way. 

Sometimes there is error that appears if it was only part of the site that stopped working. Refreshing the page would then have the whole website be unreachable.

Uncaught TypeError: Failed to execute 'appendChild' on 'Node': parameter 1 is not of type 'Node'.

I have tried both on chrome and firefox. I have reset and took in/out both OA. 
System logs only show that it could not ping the dns and ntp servers, but I was able to ping them at the same time it gave those errors.

Any help would be appreciated as I have no idea how I can update anything if the connection is always lost. 

If it helps, I am using VCSU from a virtual machine on a computer that is connected to the same network as the blade system. I am trying to update the interconnect modules to 4.50 individually and then go to 4.60 on both modules. 
I tested with OA firmware 4.50, then 4.60 and am now updating to 4.70.

This is my first time using blades and it is, for now, only to learn how it works, a demo of sorts. If this problem can be taken care of without changing hardware or paying for support that would be preferable. 

EDIT:

I can update the OA from USB through the web GUI no problem tested and working from 4.50 to 4.60,
I cannot do it from a file on another computer through the GUI tested 4.60 to 4.70 update was not made and the active OA lost connection when it was supposed to restart.
I can do it from SSH, both OA were updated and even lived through the restart. Tested and working from 4.60 to 4.70.

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

I cannot do the update by VC only from VCSU (from what I understand) so I do not understand your question. 
What log ? There is no log for this as far as I am aware, It only stops when I shutdown VCSU. 

EDIT : Here is me trying to do a Healthcheck after the update froze :

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

How can you update vc ?
Using VCSU utilily right ?
So VCSU utility created logs for all step of update
These logs are located in vcsu directory

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

VCSU DirectoryVCSU Directory

These are the only files in the directory, I have no idea what logs you are speaking of.

All other logs are in the C:\Users\user\AppData\Local\Temp folder and named vcsu-### No log was made for the updates except what I said about it stopping at "Starting firmware update process" line.

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

I do not understand what you mean by "connected to VC" I am using VCSU because it is not possible to update interconnect module firmwares from the Virtual Connect Manager. I can connect to the Manager no problem. Is it the system log from the VC Manager you want to see ? 

Here it is :

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

Are you connected directly to oa ethernet port
To do update or somewhere on the network and passing thru VC
To reach them
That is my question

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

Always testing I am. Here is what happens when I am connected to the web gui (OA and VC) at the same time as the VCSU :

I then go to the standby OA's web gui (becasue I do not have access to the real thing right now), I transition it to active and wait for it to reload. During all this time I cannot ping the current Active OA's ip until it is in transitionned to Standy.

Re: Communication with Active Onboard Administrator Lost

I am on the same network... ? 

I connect through the ip address and everything works until the ip stops working. That ip is the ip of the active OA that is connected to a switch with a RJ-45 cable.... I do not undertsand what you want to know more ?

EDIT: I think I just understood your question. As stated on the original post, I am on the same network, not connected directly to the blade which would be impossible as I am not in the same phisycal space as said blade system. Even if I was connected directly to it, how would that help as I would still need an ip address to make the update and the OA (as of now) always loses that connection ?
